FashionVacation Dresses: The Two Colors You HAVE to Pack

With summer on the horizon, long weekends and tropical getaways are all we can think about. Nothing says vacation mode like some of summers hottest hues. Two shades that we’re particularly loving for vacation dresses are beautiful blues and soothing yellows. Whether you’re island hopping in Greece, or laying low stateside, we have the perfect selection of vacation dresses in each summer shade.

Blue Dresses

Into the blue

Shades of blue call to mind beautiful oceans and tropical back drops which makes it the perfect hue to don while exploring new destinations this vacation season.  Mix it up with different prints with dresses like our Field Day Navy Blue Print Maxi Dress, our Sunday Morning Blue Tie-Dye Wrap Maxi Dress or the Always and Forever Blue Floral Print Lace-Up High-Low Dress. Looking for a more classic look? Our Transatlantic Voyage Blue and Ivory Striped Midi Dress takes the off-the-shoulder trend and pairs it with chic blue and ivory stripes for a timeless look. Want to make a statement without a printed fabric? Step out in our wow-worthy Magical Movement Periwinkle Blue Wrap Maxi Dress for your next vacation.

Yellow Dresses

Hello, yellow

One of the most-loved hues this season will instantly brighten up your vacation look! From softer shades to golden tones, we have a serious color crush on yellow this season. With temperatures rising, we’re all about breezy silhouettes that will keep us cool this summer. Choose a flattering trapeze shape like our Tupelo Honey Yellow Dress or stay fresh in a shift silhouette like the Sugar Town Print Dress or the Hello Sunshine Yellow Off-the-Shoulder Dress. Take this hue to the next level and add a sultry maxi dress to your packing list. Our Marisha Golden Yellow Halter Maxi has a wrap style bodice, finishing off the look with a tying sash belt. Add a little glamour to your look with the Elevate Mustard Yellow Embroidered Maxi Dress, which features shiny embroidered stripes that flow from crisscrossing straps into a princess-seamed triangle bodice.

BeautyPerfect Makeup: 3 Easy Steps

Perfect Makeup: 3 Easy Steps

Looking for a go-to makeup look? We got you! We interviewed one of our favorite makeup artists, Ahna Ellis, to show us how she achieves the perfect summer look. Ahna creates makeup looks for all of our beautiful models daily, so we definitely trust her with all things beauty! Follow these three easy steps for a flawless face.

Prep: Ahna suggests starting with a clean face and prepping the skin with a moisturizing primer.

Once the skin is prepped, she advises starting with the eyes (before skin!) for more versatility and a cleaner look.

Perfect Makeup: Step 3

Step 1: Eyes

“To start off, I begin with a concealer base on the eyelid to help the shadow to last, and then I blend a neutral matte shadow into the eyelid using a fluffy blending brush,” says Ahna. “After I have my base shadow, I buff a darker matte shadow onto the crease to add definition to the eye. The shadows in this palette are perfect for building this look. If you’re wanting something a bit more fun, use a flat synthetic brush to pack a pop of sparkle in the center of the eye to catch the light. If I’m doing a sun-kissed bronze-y look, I love adding a pop of gold shadow to the lid!”

Perfect Makeup: Step 1

Step 2: Lashes

“For a fuller lash line, follow up your shadow by curling your lashes and using a volumizing mascara. A quick and simple trick to get lashes even fuller is to first coat lashes with a white priming mascara and let it dry for a few minutes before applying a volumizing formula in a dark color. This will lift, lengthen and plump the lashes to really open up those eyes!”

Perfect Makeup: Step 2

Step 3: Skin

“Once the skin is prepped and the eyes are done, I usually buff foundation in with a flat top Kabuki brush. My favorite foundation brushes at the moment are the Japonesque complexion brushes. For more oily skin use a matte foundation formula to control shine, and for normal to dry skin, a luminous dewy finish works best to keep skin looking youthful and radiant. I then go in with a beauty blender to push the products into the skin to give it a beautiful airbrushed effect.”

“Once the foundation is set I use a concealer on the high points of the face such as under the eyes, the bridge of the nose, and the center of the forehead to brighten and highlight the face. For a sun-kissed look, I finish it off with a bronzer on the areas that would naturally see the sun. I love the NYX Medium Matte Bronzer as an affordable option to achieve that warm glow.”

Perfect Makeup

And there you have it! Simple makeup that’s perfect and versatile for everyday wear and all this summer’s events. Check, please!

FashionEveryday Summer Sandals

Summer is quickly approaching and we couldn’t be more excited about it!

With sunny beach days, outdoor weddings, and late summer nights on our radar, we are looking for shoes that can keep up with our busy summer schedules but still look fresh. If being stylish yet comfortable is your thing, check out some of our favorite everyday summer shoes (that your feet will thank you for)!

Pompom Sandals

POM POMS

We were all about pom poms when they came into the picture last summer, and we are STILL loving them! What better way to make your sandals ready for all the summer parties ahead than with bright splashes of color? We love how they add a bit of fun and playfulness to any outfit. If you love the pom pom trend as much as we do, pair your sandals with some of our pom pom clutches, totes, or earrings to amp up your outfit for the ultimate fun vibe!

Metallic Sandals

METALLICS

As the trends show, metallic shoes are here to stay. Metallic sandals are the perfect way to wear an everyday shoe that’s equally as comfortable as it is glam. Opt for gold sandals for your next summer wedding to make it through the cocktail hour and reception and be the last one on the dance floor!

Statement Slides

STATEMENT SLIDES

Slides have quickly become a wardrobe staple! We love the modern, simple straps of slides, making them the perfect option for running out the door in a hurry without sacrificing style. Slides that make a statement with patterns, embellishments, or metallic features are definitely a summer favorite! It’s the perfect shoe to dress up casual jeans and a basic tee, while also being chic enough to wear with your favorite summer dresses.

Embroidered Sandals

EMBROIDERY

This year we’ve seen embroidery EVERYWHERE! From dresses to jackets to jeans to shoes, this trend has popped up on all our favorite looks…and we aren’t mad about it! We love the embroidered trend, and it woudn’t be a roundup of our everyday summer shoe favorites without featuring some of our beloved embroidered sandals and mules.  It’s the perfect shoe to dress up any simple outfit and adds the perfect cool-girl vibe.
